Put your best foot forward and join our Walk for Wards
On Sunday 17 July, staff, friends and family of the Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust invite you to join them in dusting off the walking boots and striding out in an effort to raise money for a chosen ward, department or campaign.
Walk for Wards is a sponsored walk of up to10k and provides a fantastic opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors while raising money for your local hospital. It’s open to anyone, young or old, but sorry no pets, and you can walk as little or as much of the planned route as you choose.
For the fourth year running, the walk will return to the beautiful Englefield Estate, the family home of the Benyons. The course will take you through mature woodland, delightful gardens and an open deer park, and provide wonderful views of Englefield House. You may even get to see a polo game too!
Ian Thomson, Interim Charity Director said: “Walk for Wards is a super day out for everyone. As well as the walk, there will be live music from local rock band ‘Not the North’, a barbecue and refreshment tent, plus every entrant will be supplied with free bananas to keep them going
“It’s really easy to sign up, just visit the website www.walkforwards.co.uk and complete the details. Or, if you don’t have access to a computer you can pick up a registration form from the hospital and when completed return it to the Charity office.
“Since the first walk in 2013 the annual event has raised more than £45,000, which has been used to enhance the care and environment for our patients, visitors and staff. So please join us; you would be surprised how much of a difference you can make.”
The team is also always looking for help at events, so if you would like to get involved but walking isn’t for you, sign up to become a volunteer at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0118 322 6969.
